Around 1967 a blue flag with a white Gaelic "e" was produced in line with a funnel change but it was never actually used as a houseflag although it was used briefly by the "Leinster" as a stem jack [Loughran (1979)]. In the late 1980s the name changed to B&I Line plc and then in the latter 1990s it became part of the Irish Continental Group having been owned by the Irish Government since 1966.

The website of the National Maritime Museum describes the house flag of the Irish Shipping Ltd, Dublin. A white rectangular flag with a red St Patrick's saltire. The arms of the four Irish provinces Leinster, Connacht, Ulster and Munster, are placed in the quarters. The flag is made of a wool and synthetic fibre bunting. It has a cotton hoist and is machine sewn. The four shields are printed on cotton appliqués. A rope and toggle is attached.

The shipping company was established in the early 1940s with the Irish government as a major shareholder. It was the first Irish flag operator of deep sea vessels. Initially, the house flag had the company initials in the quarters, but these were replaced with the arms of the four provinces in 1947."
